Boys - vs - Dedham
4/5/17 (Norton-5, Dedham-2)
Going into this season, the biggest concern for the Lancers was defense. Game number two on the schedule answered some of those concerns. It turned out to be a challenging day for the offense. There were several unforced turnovers, and the Dedham defense played well. The Norton defense was able to keep Dedham from taking a lead even though they kept within one or two points throughout most of the game. Nick Joyce played extremely well finishing with 12 saves for 85%. Joe Weber tallied 9 ground balls and scored the final goal in the last couple of minutes of the game to put it out of reach.
With a few days to regroup and prepare for the next game on Monday at Rockland, the Lancers will be working on taking better care of the ball and finding the opponent's net more often.
